Walmart Merchandising: 2018 Summary

Experiential Marketing & Merchandising

Business insights combined with customer engagement

What had started out as a traditional showcar program has been completely reimagined and renamed to an Experiential Marketing and Merchandising Program. This program has set the new standard for how to maximize value out of sponsorship, and out of an asset that comes along with it. Not only does this program rev-up fans at every market that it visits, it also provides active feedback on stock, traffic, promotions, opportunities and more. There are certain markets where we visit the same stores twice in one season to coincide with the NASCAR calendar. Those markets are not double counted below and the metrics shown are only unique market visits.

Engaging Walmart Customers Across the United States During 2018

Catching potential customers right before they buy is some of the most effective marketing that can be done. This is a wonderful platform to tell the product's story and tie to performance, leveraging primary sponsorship in motorsports. Our team not only educates and hosts incoming customers outside the store, but they also gather key insights from inside the locations to deliver valuable and actionable sales information to increase sales growth. This information ranges from local promotions being run, to competitive campaigns and ensuring that Shell and Pennzoil products are always properly displayed and merchandised.

Take a look at the map below where you can zoom in to each of the markets the program engaged. This interactive map is a great tool for you to get a sense of the diversity of reach captured through the year. You can also easily share or present the map right from this web page, using the tools in the top right.
